This workbook presents a diverse conceptual overview of color theory coupled with numerous studies and activities to solidify students' understanding of design and color concepts through hands-on experience. This workbook combines both a formal and content-oriented approach to color with students, allowing them to use it both technically and as an expressive tool. As a practicing artist and an art educator, Becky Koenig has possessed a lifelong desire to master color. She created this text to present a wide range of many color theories, rather than a singular viewpoint. The workbook covers the expanding field of electronic color and discusses color in terms of art history and contemporary art. It includes a variety of student activities that have proved successful in the classroom.
